He wants half a dozen small firms to put themselves forward to go to the House of Commons and show off their products in an exhibition to MPs, Ministers and policy makers.

Mr Farron, the Liberal Democrat MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale, has described Cumbria’s food and drink sector as the “best in the UK”.

He said: “I want to support local businesses and our Cumbria Day is a great way to give small and medium-sized businesses a chance to shine on the national stage.

“In Cumbria, we are lucky to be the home to world-class businesses.

“I want other people to see how fantastic they are and this exhibition offers a real opportunity to put Cumbria in the shop window.”

The event will be held on Wednesday February 13 from 9.30am-4pm.

Mr Farron hopes that manufacturing and tourism businesses will put themselves forward, as well as farming and food businesses.

To apply, email or call the MP’s office on 01539 723403.
